A View of Easter

I had a lovely Easter weekend and I'm going to share the pictures that don't have faces in them with you!  Starting off, here's the gorgeous sunset picture I got on Saturday night after a glorious campfire.  The glowing crack is a ventilation crack in the barn.  I caught the sunset pouring through.  This is one of my new favorite pictures.

This is the traditional lamb cake that we always make.  It's a bit of a rigamarole, but we love it and it makes such a pretty centerpiece, besides being delicious!

Easter Sunday, there was church, then a big extended family party with delicious ham and sides and plenty of desserts (I'm still recovering from a sugar headache!)  After I got home, I was fiddling with the camera and got a very pretty shot of a pot of hyacinths, an old crate-turned-plant stand, and a vintage armchair in the kitchen.
So that was my easter.  How was yours?  Was it a quiet gathering with a few people?  A big family wing-ding like me?  Or did you not celebrate Easter?  I'd love to know what you did.

If I ever finish blasted A Company of Swans, I'll review it.  It's a perfectly good book, but I have had so many other distractions recently that reading has been pushed to the back burner.  I'm looking forward to a quiet week with plenty of reading!


  1. Love your lamb cake.

    Our Easter was quiet. My son wasn't able to come home, but the day was still nice.

    Nice blog. It looks as if you like quilts. I just read The Forgotten Seamstress by Liz Trenow. A quilt was the main focus.

    A review will be on my blog on May 30, but I have a small excerpt from my review on my It's Monday! What Are You Reading post.

    Have a wonderful week.

    1. Hello! You're right, I do like quilts. Actually, when I thought up the title of my blog, I was thinking about curling up under a quilt and reading, not quilting per se. (Can you tell I thought of the title on a freezing cold, snowing March day?) However, I am working on a quilt right now, so I guess the title makes sense in more ways than one!

      I'll be interested to read your review of The Forgotten Seamstress. It looks like a good book!
